THE CLUGSTON LINCOLNSHIRE NATIONAL

The racing highlight of Boxing Day racing is invariably the Clugston Lincolnshire National. At three and three-quarter miles, the contest is the longest race in the racecourse’s calendar.

 

There have been two Lincolnshire-trained winners in the last seven years in Soudain and Gonalston Cloud, while race-goers with longer memories will recall Victory Gunner’s hat-trick of victories between 2005 and 2007.

 

Every year the Clugston Lincolnshire National produces a headline. In 2015, James Banks booted West Of The Edge to victory to complete a double on the day for him and trainer Dai Williams who had made the long journey from west Wales. In 2016, as many as five horses had a chance at the last fence before Gonalston Cloud, from the Nick Kent stables in Brigg and ridden by Adam Wedge, pulled out a bit more to take the prize ahead of Amiral Collonges. In 2017, Amiral Collonges was an unlucky runner-up again, having to give second best to 7-1 chance Cyclop. Last year, Bridget Andrews rode the Dan Skelton-trained Ange Des Malberaux to victory.

 

Customers booking into The Brocklesby Suite Restaurant on Boxing Day please note the restaurant has been renamed Altior's Restaurant from this fixture onwards. No part of your booking will be effected.
